Apocalypse is a Great Coasters International wooden roller coaster located at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California, USA. The ride was previously named "Terminator Salvation: The Ride" and was themed after the newest sequel in the Terminator movie series. It opened on May 23, 2009.[1] It was built in the spot formerly occupied by Psyclone. Apocalypse was the first wooden coaster to have on-board speakers, but the speakers later stopped working properly and were removed when the ride was rethemed.[2] The ride also has three misty tunnels and a fire special effect.

In March 2017, the rougher sections of the ride were retracked by British company Wood Coaster Developments.

Trains[edit | edit source]

Apocalypse's trains have 12 cars seating 2 across. However, the 12th car, which formerly housed the speaker system does not seat riders. This makes the train's maximum capacity 22.
